Good Morning Respected Pawarji Sir aka RPS,

2. "C". Critical Chain talks about resource constraints on a CPM.


Please let us know of the answers.


Warmly, KK...

Yes you are right . PMBOK p 155 (186pdf) last para ist line.

Q. Which one of the following is correct asending order of severity of causes of conflict which may affect the progress, at project work:

  1. Resources, ---- >    Personalities, -----> Schedules

  2. Priorities, ------     > Resources,------ >   Schedules

  3. Resources, -------> Preorities,---------->  Schedules

  4. Personalities,----  > Resources,------- >  Schedules


Ans 2. Priorities -> Resources -> schedules 

What is source (base ) of your answer?

How should I agree upon?

Pawar....i just based the answer from my gut experience...

 - Priorities like Org priority mostly on budget or perks for one proj than another, which in my opinion are manageable 

- Rescources can yield a lot of trouble, both Human and non-human...they are the raw materials for production and alike and a small conflict can trigger bigger issues. scarce resources , infra structure , a particular technology engineer etc

- Schedules , these directly meddle with the customers/stakeholders interest and can easily upset them (due to a delayed delivery) ,the impact is comparitively huge and potentially devastating, sometime could even cost the project and any future opportunities that shoyuld be in pipeline... 


Answer pls...

Actually it is not from PMBOK.

PMBOK just speaks - 4 sources of CONFLICTS among project team

  1. Scarce Resources (

  2. Schedules - pl pay attention - schedule is here staff assignment schedule (resource calanders)also. dont miss this point.(

  3. Scheduling Priorities(

  4. Personal way of working (style of working) - Personallities(

Like PMBOK does not suggest, sequencing 6 ways of resolving conflicts, only says these are situationally important,  But few writers arrange them in a order. Says Confronting is most up in order where withdrawing is last one , some says Forcing is last(this not correct- by many of good writers).

Referencing above question, I read in RITA and one question similar (not ditto- even you can't catch it - from human resource chapter last pages series.)

On that basis I prepare it and tuned it by a side source of  HAROLD KERZNER (read  my post in this forum "easy six").

and my answer is 3.

                                             - Schedules 1    ^

                     - Priorities 2                              ^

- Resources 3                                                 ^
